I think I'm ready to make a change ... to get rid of the "landline" house phone. My primary reservation to switching purely to cell service is reliable access to emergency 9-1-1. After all, I have some personal experience needing 9-1-1 and they had my back! Once again Henrico Emergency Service, thank you. If you're curious about that experience you can read about it here.
David is concerned about anyone who has our current phone number that we might overlook updating with our new contact info should we go purely cell. I'm more bothered by the messages I keep forgetting to check on the house machine and that can go unanswered for days before I notice the red light. Really, there's just two people in this household and I think you could leave a voicemail for us in over 7 places!
Then there's the question of what to do at nighttime if you rely solely on a cell phone; leave it on? carry it to the bedroom? I'm sure there's even more logistics ... OK, so there's a bit more involved to making this decision.
I'm curious how you handle phone access for your family.
Do you still have a landline / house phone?
Are you exclusively a cellular household?
What are the logistics of relying solely on a cell?
Anything you could share with me about your phone service would be greatly appreciated because checking all these darn phones for messages is driving me a bit nuts!
Oh, and I plan to post this week about a bit of kitchen reorganization ... sort of that time of year to simplify, guess that's what I'm trying to do with the phones too!
